An investigation into a missense variant associated with cataracts in Puerto Ricans.
A prospective analysis of disease incidence and progression with genetic, clinical, and lifestyle risk factors.
Those are just two of the seven posters that the 23andMe research team will present at this year’s American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) meeting.
The meeting, which will be held in Los Angeles October 25-29, provides a forum for the discussion of cutting-edge science in all areas of human genetics.
Highlights of this year’s agenda include symposia, booths, scientific sessions, and workshops, as well as a Presidential Symposium on recent developments in African genomics.
23andMe at ASHG
Below you’ll find a full list of our presentations and posters at ASHG.
In addition to our research contributions, we’ll also have a booth (#1248) where conference attendees can learn more about several of our initiatives – including our Postdoc Program and our Research Innovation Collaboration Program. We hope to see you there!
